Massive disconnect with the Goodyear Tire Company that tried to hornswoggle their own employees.

They had some kind of "policy" that all of a sudden forbid specific political statements on clothing.

Now apparently they are "reversing" and burning rubber !!

I bet they got sucked in to some kind of management service that ended up being a Democrat con game !!

Trump got wind of this BS and started a Twitter zhitstorm LOL !!


The "Allegations" are:


As we detailed earlier, a slide that purports to be from Goodyear's diversity training has leaked and appears to show that the company considers “Blue Lives Matter,” “All Lives Matter” and “MAGA” attire “unacceptable,” while at the same time encouraging "Black Lives Matter" and "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride (LGBT)" attire.

@realDonaldTrump
Don’t buy GOODYEAR TIRES - They announced a BAN ON MAGA HATS. Get better tires for far less! (This is what the Radical Left Democrats do. Two can play the same game, and we have to start playing it now!).





Update (1150ET): Well, that didn't take long. Goodyear has quickly issued a press release backing away from the 'diversity' training's liberal bias.

So, to summarize, Goodyear hired an external firm to do 'diversity training' to signal just how virtuous they were and the leftist bias in the 'diversity' came back to bite them.

Our company is Fortune 100 and liberal in looks. But with a recent 20% reduction in force we've noticed all the conservative people seem to still be here. Outward Bernie or Biden supporters seem to be gone. Probably something about we come to work everyday.

Goodyear's Twitter post says it didn't come from corporate. So either Topeka is selectively enforcing policy or corporate is LYING...

hmmmm...

Can't disagree with that. Their stance should be, "we make tires."

I think he bean counters at GoodYear just realized that Trump could easily cancel the government contract with GY for all those tires on the government fleet vehicles. And figured that if the government switches brands then they are going to be out a lot of money.

I'm not Irish, but I have lived here for a long time...and yes the southern Irish speak English, mostly better than the English do...I'm English! I thought though you might have understood that joke, given your Dr Strangelove persona.

Actually as to my avatar, I use to fly nukes around the world back in the 90s and after we landed somewhere on a long day we would put on Dr. Strangelove and watch a good chunk of it as the crew got ready to go eat/drink for the night....lol

It could be interesting to see big discounts and sale specials on Goodyear tires anytime soon.

Nope, not buying no matter what.

Hey,

Looks like I get to add Goodyear to the "political trash do not buy list" like Gillette products and Dicks sporting goods.


Hell, I am going to order a couple more my pillows.
